Productivity - Key To Plenty




A compilation of live footage, staged scenes and animation discussing the rise of the U.S. standard of living as it is tied to the rise of productivity--comparison of man hour earnings in 1850 ($ .27) to 1900 ($ .56) to 1949 ($1.40). An argument for the appreciation of "the American Way" by not standing in the way of increased productivity through the use of machines.

Somewhat over the top USA rah rah film that seems to be more at home with Clifford Ganus and his whacky school than EB. Heck, even EB seems to almost take a step back at the beginning, with the disclaimer!
